Little Big City Berlin

Little Big City Berlin makes a hell of an entrance. Never before have I seen a combination of miniature landscapes and holograms. Plus, your host has the most charming Berlin accent. While Little Big City is rather small, we still failed to see many hidden treasures, like the Ghost of Hohenzollern, the Grimm Brothers or Albert Einstein on his bicycle.

It certainly lacks the detail of established miniature traps like Hamburg but it is cute and gets some brownie points for not shying away and showing Berlin history. This is a (short but) fun trip for anybody who is interested in the history of Berlin. Even if you are not a history buff, yarn of Berlin makes for some pretty good stories.

PS: Pro Tip

Book your tickets online to save some money. You’ll also end up with vouchers for the other attractions of this company. Do yourself a favor and just DO NOT GO. (No offence guys, but your other tourist traps are a pretty bad rip-off.)
